- Honda Motor Co Ltd HMC said it plans a range of self-driving electric vehicles targeted at people who do not want to drive.
- The range of EVs, Bloomberg reported, will cater to groups including elderly people who don’t drive and the younger, Gen Z crowd which is not into owning or driving cars.
- Named as micro-mobility devices, the Japanese auto major is hopeful for a growth in demand for such vehicles.
- Honda aims to make the technology available for general use in 2030.
- The move comes when Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, is grappling with an aging population, resulting in a lack of working pool.
- The automaker has also joined with Sony Group Corp SONY to make available premium EVs in North America by 2025.
- Price Action: HMC shares closed higher by 2.54% at $23.45 on Friday.
